Mavi Air, a Turkey-based helicopter operator, has recently added an Airbus AS355 aircraft to its fleet. This move is part of the company's strategy to build up a helicopter shuttle service, starting with Bodrum and expanding to other destinations across Turkey. The AS355 aircraft is known for its twin-engine capabilities, reliability and versatility, making it an ideal choice for Mavi Air's expansion plans.

In addition to the AS355 acquisition, Mavi Air is set to add the Airbus H135 helicopter to its fleet later this year. This addition will further strengthen the company's commitment to providing high-quality helicopter services in Turkey. The H135 is a popular choice in the helicopter industry, known for its performance, advanced technology and safety features. Mavi Air's expansion plans reflect the growing demand for private air transportation services in Turkey.

The company is focused on offering a diverse range of aircraft options, including fixed-wing and rotorcraft. Expansion is on the cards in Greece, and Mavi has a desire to become a leading player in the Turkish and Greek charter markets, which enjoys demand from tourists during summer seasons. Turkey is also looking to develop ski regions, putting twin engine helicopters to good use.

CEO Alex Sahni says: “We believe the AS355 can meet market needs by providing a reliable, efficient and versatile twin-engine rotorcraft with exceptional performance and safety features. Its proven track record makes it a valuable asset for tourism missions, and I look forward to seeing how the AS355 can evolve to the changing market demands.”
